Symptoms

In OBIEE 11.1.1.5.0, you have a report with an action link on a dimension column and the action link contains some text.  This text appears when you click on the column when the report is run.  If you then export the report to Excel, the action link text is exported as well.  If you print the report (say to PRF), the action link text does not appear.

This only occurs when you define the Action Link as 'Navigate to a Web Page' or 'Invoke a Browser Script'.
